Web Services not available in recent Mandrake 9.0 install


2 Problems:
1. Trying to run web-services fails
2. No expat support installed

History:
I had a working Mandrake 7.x setup that was running Apache, PHP and MySQL. All compiled from source. WSDL worked without any problems. expat support somehow got built-in along the way

MySQL suddenly stopped being run on startup after 10 months or so. Rather than find what the problem was, I installed later version of Mandrake on a better machine.

Install:
Default 'server' install run - accepted standard Apache, PHP and MySQL (i.e. have not compiled from source this time).

Currently:
phpinfo() showed no 'XML' section, and '--with-expat-dir=/usr' in the php 'configure command' section.

I have just run urpmi to install expat, but still no sign of it.

I have the above 2 problems, and have no idea of the next step.

I suppose my questions are:
1. is the lack of expat in the installation causing my web-services problem ?
2. If so, how do I install expat to the correct place ("/usr" ??) and update php to accept it ? (I need expat for some other functionality, so I need to know how / where to install it anyway)

Would appreciate any help.

Maybe try the package from MDK 9.1? Tha package name is expat-1.95.5-1mdk.i586.rpm (for example from here: ftp://ftp.chemo.tuniv.szczecin.pl/pu...-1mdk.i586.rpm)

Thanks Mara,

Already installed expat, but don't know where it installed to, or how to tell apache / php where to find it.

Please remember that I am a Linux beginner trying to switch from Micro$oft, but finding the differences between Windows and Linux are massive, so you can't possibly make things too simple for me

You have it from RPM, right? If so, everything should be configured and it you should be able to use it without any extra steps.

The files installed by 'expat' packages are:
/usr/bin/xmlwf (executable)
/usr/share/man/man1/xmlwf.1.bz2 (man page)
